Watching the Lehigh/New Hampshire Game Today (ESPN3)


For whatever reason, you didn't make the trip to Durham, New Hampshire.  You've popped your popcorn, iced your Yuenglings, and put the meatballs in the crockpot - and then you panic.

How do I watch the game?  What is ESPN3?  Can I watch it on my TV?  Do I need to subscribe to something?  WHAT DO I DO???

Never fear.  LFN's here to help.


This week's FCS playoff game, and all the FCS playoff games for that matter, are available on ESPN3, ESPN's streaming service.

ESPN3 is available with anyone with a subscription to a some sort of service that has ESPN.  This can come in a variety of ways: through Service Electric, Comcast Xfinity, Verizon FiOS, etc.  If you're a cord-cutter, it's available through a Sling TV subscription to ESPN.

If you are watching ESPN3 on a phone or tablet, you can download the ESPN app and click on the "Watch Now" button to catch the game.  You might need to plug in login credentials to authorize it, but once that's done, you're good to go.

If you are watching it on a laptop or computer, you can click on http://www.espn3.com and find the "Lehigh at New Hampshire" link on the list.  Click, and it will play in a web browser.

If you have Chrome on your computer and a Chromecast stick plugged into your TV, you can turn your live stream into a "tab", and then easily cast the tab to Chromecast to display on your TV by clicking the special button on the web browser.  (This is what I do.)

If you have a Roku stick, Playstation 4 (with Vue), or Amazon Fire TV or other App-enabled TV devices, you may have the ability to start the "WatchESPN" app directly on your TV already.  Fire it up, choose "Lehigh at New Hampshire", and go.

The ESPN3 broadcast won't simply be a webcam and a person with an Eisenhower era microphone: it's full-blown coverage, with Bob Picozzi and Marcus Ray calling the game.

If want to listen to the game on the radio (as I will be), you can catch the Lehigh game feed online here, or you can listen on AM at three spots around the Lehigh Valley on the AM Dial: 1160, 1230 and 1320.  Matt Kerr,  Mike Yadush and Steve Lomangino are going to be the radio crew.

There is a full buffet of terrific college football today at both the FBS and FCS levels, and the first round of the FCS playoffs unfortunately fall smack-dab in the middle of it, with six of the eight playoff games going on simultaneously in the middle of a slew of terrific Rivalry games.  (Well, for Lehigh and Lafayette fans, they are still baby Rivalries; none of these teams have played each other 152 times, like the Leopards and Mountain Hawks have.)

2:00 PM Charleston Southern at Wofford

Fifteen Guys Who Might be Lehigh's Next Football Coach (and Five More)

If you've been following my Twitter account, you might have caught some "possibilities" as Lehigh's next head football coach like Lou Holtz, Brett Favre and Bo Pelini.  The chance that any of those three guys actually are offered and accept the Lehigh head coaching position are somewhere between zero and zero.  (The full list of my Twitter "possibilities" are all on this thread on the Lehigh Sports Forum.)

However the actual Lehigh head football coaching search is well underway, with real names and real possibilities.

I've come up with a list of fifteen possible names, some which I've heard whispered as candidates, others which might be good fits at Lehigh for a variety of reasons.

UPDATE: I have found five more names of possible head coaches that I am adding to this list below.

Who are the twenty people?  Here they are, in alphabetical order.

How The Ivy League Is Able To Break the NCAA's Scholarship Limits and Still Consider Themselves FCS

By now you've seen the results.  In 2018, the Ivy League has taken the FCS by storm.

Perhaps it was Penn's 30-10 defeat of Lehigh a couple of weeks ago.  Or maybe it was Princeton's 50-9 drubbing of another team that made the FCS Playoffs last year, Monmouth.  Or maybe it was Yale's shockingly dominant 35-14 win over nationally-ranked Maine last weekend.

The Ivy League has gone an astounding 12-4 so far in out-of-conference play, many of those wins coming against the Patriot League.

But it's not just against the Patriot League where the Ivy League has excelled. 

Every Ivy League school has at least one out-of-conference victory, which is remarkable since it is only three games into their football season. 

The four losses - Rhode Island over Harvard, Holy Cross over Yale, Delaware over Cornell, and Cal Poly over Brown - were either close losses that could have gone either way or expected blowouts of teams picked to be at the bottom of the Ivy League.

Why the Ivy Le…

Remembering Andy Coen's Time As Head Coach As He Steps Down as Lehigh Football Head Coach To Address Health Issue

I read the announcement that head coach Andy Coen was stepping down as head football coach late Friday evening.

It was an announcement that I was expecting, to some degree. 

Those of use who have been following the program closely knew that something was amiss with Andy. 

And yet, the reason for him needing to step down was devastating.

"Life has thrown me a curveball," Coen said in the press release on Friday, December 7th, 2018. "I am in the early stages [of early onset Alzheimer's disease] and it is best for me to eliminate stress and concentrate on my health and well-being.  My wife, Laura, and my children, Molly, Nolan and Finn have supported me throughout my career and are my biggest fans.  This is a very difficult decision for all of us, but it is what is best at this time."

It was the gutting, pit-in-the-stomach diagnosis nobody wanted to be true.  Just like that, a bigger challenge than simply winning football games faces the man who has been heading …
